Destruction of Nature

"Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation... tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman void spreads monstrously like a gray vegetation." ~Jean Arp

Since so many people have asked, the title is meant to have dual meaning. The one most commonly assumed is that "nature" means the natural world. There's another, deeper meaning to it, and it is the destruction of human nature.

The drive to distraction and noise, anything that will block meditation and contemplation of oneself, is so strong, that humans will destroy anything in their path to keep them alive.

ok, with all of the detail put into this, the fur the lighting, the shading, the ink, the eye, the metal, the background. All of the other little details which make it just that bit better make this look amazing, more that even, stellar! The emotion and dynamism helps too! ^^
